Watercolor Wash for TGIFC58

Hey everyone! Happy Friday :)  There's a ton of excitement this week as Stampin' Up! released their new catalog.  It is amazing! There's a ton of new goodies - I'm in love with the new ribbons!  I can't wait to share more with you!

But today, I am going to be quick.  I'm actually on vacation visiting my brother and his family in Texas, so I'm trying to "unplug" as much as I can.

The new challenge this week at TGIF Challenges is a color challenge.  This one certainly had my stumped, but I needed a birthday card for my sweet mom so I decided to make a girly card with the butterflies.  I'm also adding this challenge to the fun and fruity challenge over at Just Add Ink!

I have not used the butterfly stamps and framelits for quite sometime.  I guess there is just something new and great just around the corner and it's hard to stick to a trend or fad too long.  But, I still think these are great!  The swirly background was made with the new Swirls & Scribbles dies. 

I thought this sentiment from The Wilderness Awaits was a perfect fit for my mom.

For the inside I wanted to carry over the watercolored look.  I took my aqua painter and added some Melon Mambo wash. 

I'll be home soon and hope to share some more NEW goodies with you!

Make sure you head over to the TGIF Challenges blog and see what the rest of the design team has come up with for this week's color challenge!

Have a great weekend!
